Why to recycle?

Not only electrical equipment but also batteries and accumulators contain various recyclable metals like zinc, iron, manganese, nickel, cadmium or plumb. At the same time, some of these compounds, especially mercury, plumb and cadmium, can be very harmful to the environment and human’s health. Batteries are usually marked with symbols of the chemical element(s) contained inside the battery (Pb, Cd, Hg).
By handing over of batteries and electrical equipment at the take-back points, you can assure its material recycling and thus preserve primary raw materials and protect the environment from effects of unprofessional and potentially harmful treatment of the waste.
